Captain Obvious and General Sidestep

Larry Holmes and Don King were on NPR this morning, talking about the upcoming video game from 2K Sports, “Don King Presents: Prizefighter”.

Choice quote from Larry Holmes:

If it weren’t for boxing, I wouldn’t be sitting here today talking to you about boxing!

*birds chirping*

King’s explanation of his 1966 manslaughter conviction was also a winner.  I’m paraphrasing here, but he said something like this:

A man and I got into a fistfight – what they call an “Expression of the Ghetto” and he was sometime later unfortunate to expire.

I suppose we all whitewash history to some extent.
